Why choose Helmores?
If you are considering selling a property here are a handful of reasons why you should seriously consider instructing us:
The Sunday Times Estate Agent of the Year in 2013, 2014 and 2015 – Best Single Office South West
For the second year in a row we have been voted the Best Single Office Estate Agent in the South West – an achievement we are immensely proud of. In addition, we won bronze awards for Innovation (Aerial Film & Photography), and Best Agent to Work For, at the 2014 awards.
First Class Marketing
Our brochures are smart and beautifully laid out. Much thought goes into the photography, and we have a real focus on creating inspiring, well-lit photos which show properties at their best.
Best Customer Service
The independent review website Allagents.co.uk awarded us Best Agent in the South West for customer service in 2014, and 99% of reviewers say they would use us again.
Long Opening Hours – 7 Days A Week
Our High Street office is open 7 days a week, and we even answer the phone up to 8 o’clock at night during the week.
Large Prominent High Street Offices
We have a huge window display right in the centre of town together with 2 eye-catching plasma screens running aerial films 24/7.
Online Marketing and Social Media
As well as having large High Street offices, we promote all properties on the internet in a big way. Our main focus is on Rightmove.co.uk and OnTheMarket.com. Many buyers use social media to house hunt, and our Facebook page has well over 1000 likes. We regularly Tweet too!
For spectacular marketing we have an in-house Aerial Film and Photography department, fully qualified and permission to fly from the CAA. This is a service that NO other estate agency currently offers.
The buyer for your property may not live in this area, and in a recent survey of properties we have sold found that 65% moved here from other parts of the country. The London showroom in Mayfair (opposite Hyde Park, just past Bob Forstner Pagani car showroom) takes full advantage of buyers in the South East relocating to our area.
Database of Buyers
We have a HUGE database of over 5,000 buyers – many of which could be interested in your property.
Over 316 years of experience
Yes – you did read that correctly! We’ve been in business since 1699 and are believed to be the oldest established firm of estate agents in England – that’s an incredible track record that speaks for itself.
Clarity, Honesty, & Hard Work
We will never deliberately over value a property to gain instructions. We provide clear, honest advice from the outset, followed up by serious hard work to get your property sold for the best price.
